It’s published by Northern Irish media group Alpha Newspapers; its editorial offices share premises with Alpha’s headquarters in Dungannon. The newspaper also has an office in Cookstown.
It was founded in 1880 as The Tyrone Courier. In 1916 it became The Tyrone Courier and the Dungannon News; the order of the two main elements was reversed in 1968 to form the current title.
It claims to have had the largest circulation of any newspaper in County Tyrone since 1880. Part of the reason for this may be that it’s sold beyond the county boundary into neighbouring Co. Fermanagh and Co. Armagh. It also boasts that it’s Northern Ireland’s largest weekly newspaper.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
